Are you interested in discovering what palaeontologists do, and learn about the techniques they use to find, extract, study and catalogue fossils?
If so, there is nothing quite as exhilarating as being the first person to dig up and set eyes on the fossil of a creature that lived millions of years ago and to learn more about it, its habitat and its significance.
Gondwana Dreaming, in conjunction with Age of Fishes Museum, offers a number of fossil dig options. These are run on a not-for-profit basis and help raise funds for the Age of Fishes museum.
